Bob Haworth from the Kingston Trio


“Tales and Tunes from the Folk Music Era”

Saturday, July 8th at 7:30

Bob Haworth (pronounced “Hay-worth”) spent nearly 40 years on the road as a member of two of the top folk-singing groups in American music history.  Replacing original member, Mike Kirkland of The Brothers Four, Bob toured the world and recorded several albums with the hit folk group.  Best known for favorites like “Greenfields”, “The Green Leaves of Summer” (nominated for an Academy Award as the theme song from the motion picture, “The Alamo”, starring John Wayne), “Try To Remember” and more, The Brothers Four topped the charts during the “Folk Music Era” of the 1960’s.


Then in 1985, Bob answered a call from close friends, The Kingston Trio, and stood in for original member, Nick Reynolds, for the next 20 years.  As the top-selling folk music group of all time, The Kingston Trio is synonymous with such classic hits as “Tom Dooley”, “Greenback Dollar” and “Where Have All The Flowers Gone?” to name a few.  Bob recorded five albums with the Trio and made concert and television appearances all over the world. 


Now semi-retired, Bob Haworth presents “Tales and Tunes from the Folk Music Era”, tracing the rise in popularity of the genre from Woody Guthrie and The Weavers in the 1940’s and ‘50’s to the many artists that caught the ear of music lovers throughout the 1960’s, including The Brothers Four and The Kingston Trio.  Every song has a story and Bob strives to recreate a “hootenanny” atmosphere by encouraging his audiences to sing along.


Drawing on the hit songs that fueled the commercial popularity of folk music, Bob’s show includes interesting and often humorous behind-the-scenes anecdotes about his life on the road and his encounters with the other stars of the era.  Delving into the history of the songs in his repertoire, Bob reveals little-known facts about the evolution of the music, adding a fascinating educational angle to his presentation.  Appropriate for all ages, this show provides an upbeat, toe-tapping, interactive glimpse into the music that comprises the Americana song bag.  As a world-class performer and a charismatic entertainer, Bob Haworth is a guaranteed crowd pleaser!
